We wre there to see 15,000 vines being planted for a new vineyard at Thakeham.

The laser guided and controlled planting machine was made in Germany, and the planting machine's crew are from Poland.

!7,000 vines in a day? That's thirsty work!

The owners of this vineyard have another similar sized vine planting at nearby Brooks Green.

They also plan a visitor centre, farm shop and wine classes and tastings on this site.

Situated on the edge of Ashdown Forest, the idyllic Sussex village of High Hurstwood is home to Alex Gibbins and her young family. 

Inspired by her natural surroundings, Hurstwood Cider was born.  A careful blend of Kent and Sussex's best dessert apples and traditional bittersweet varieties. All apple. Hand pressed. No funny additions. Just lots of passion, hard work and laughter along the way.

Alex and her small team have created a juice only cider that is crisp, fresh and entirely natural. See what you think!

Began producing cider in 2014. Hurstwood medium / dry and a dry cider.

The Project was advised that Franklins Brewery that began brewing in 2012 at an old dairy at Bexhill has moved to much larger premises at Highfield Farm at Ringmer.

Their listing in the brewers database has been updated, as has their list of Franklins beers.

They have also opened a splendid new Tap Room!

sign new small

The King's Arms was shut for a couple of months to enable the new owners to conduct a major refurbishment of this listed building.
The pub reopened on the evening of Friday 9th March, 2018.
Our verdict is that it's much brighter, lighter, and is altogether lovely!

It is great to welcome a another freehouse!

The King's Arms now has a modern kitchen and the menu and food luck very good indeed.

Today, I finished listing the lovely Mark Cross Inn at Mark Cross in East Sussex.

Followed by the White Horse Hotel in Storrington.

I began listing pubs in Lancing, but then I was diverted by Twitter!
Twitter tipped me the wink that Sussex has another two new breweries - Yippee!
Brewereies do make a welcome change from pubs!

So, instead of listing pubs, I listed the Riverside Brewery, (and six beers), at Steyning and the Cellar Head Brewery at Framfield in East Sussex, (and another 10 beers).

We now have 67 commercial brewers of beer in Sussex. Another lovely, (interesting and productive), day!

About the Loud Shirt Brewing Co Ltd....

The Loud Shirt Brewing Co. was set up by Martyn Batchelor and Mike Thomson on 29 February 2016 – a special day for a special occasion. We have two things in common – we love brewing vibrant, delicious beers; and we share the same taste in fashion!.

Martyn and Mike have been friends since 1984. Martyn is the Loud Shirt Ale-Chemist, weaving magical spells to transform our malt, hops, yeast and secret ingredients into liquid gold. Mike is the Loud Shirt Beer Cellar, a truly dedicated follower of passion, unleashing Loud Shirt beers into the world.

We are based in Brighton, currently brewing around 100 litres of beer per week. We are designing a state-of-the-art 10 barrel brewery and plan to move in the spring of 2017.


About Our beers....

Our beers are exceptional. We use top quality ingredients and we take longer than average to fully ferment / mature our beer.  We take great care in both the brewing and the storage of our beer.

All our beers are vibrant. For example, they contain quality hops, zingy fruits, subtle flowers, herbs or spices.  Our beers pack a punch, with ABVs of 5% and over.

We have been experimenting with our recipes for over a year and have recently launched our first range of beers – Psychedelic IPA, Hawaiian Tropical Pale Ale, Flower Power Floral Blonde Beer and Retro Strong Dark Beer. Savour the flavour!


At the Loud Shirt Brewing Co we take pride in crafting vibrant and exciting beers. We hand pick best quality ingredients for each batch, add a twist, condition our beers for longer than average and avoid animal or artificial clearing agents. Just like the shirts our founders Mike and Martyn love to wear, our beers are surprisingly tasteful.

Great fun was had...

By everyone who were invited along to the official launch  of Horsham's latest Brewery on last Wednesday evening at the brewery in Redkiln Close.

Chapeau Brewing Co Ltd is a craft brewery setup and operated by the husband and wife team of Michael Nugent and Katharine Lee.

Four great beers to sample and enjoy, and the food was also excellent.

It is great to have another brewery in Horsham.

We wish Michael and Katharine every success with their venture.

Michael and Katharine hope that you'll drop by on a regular basis for a chat, a look around their brewery and to sample their ales.
